My 11 year old daughter has been taking violin lessons with Mindy for about 3 months. She is enjoying her lessons and she is making excellent progress. Recently she played violin onstage with Mindy at a recital. I was very proud of her.

I highly recommend Ilana. I contacted Ilana just a few weeks before our wedding and asked for some songs which were not regular for weddings. She not only said yes to all of our songs and found us a cellist quickly, but was also responsive to discuss all the details to make sure the performance go well. At the wedding, they arrived early and our guests loved their music! My husband and I feel very grateful for their wonderful presence at our wedding!

I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with Ms. Peszko for approximately two years. Under her direction, I’ve seen improvements in my daughter’s techniques and with the build up in her confidence, she is enjoying playing the violin more. I highly recommend Ms. Peszko to any parent looking for an outstanding music teacher.

    Jerry Pajel (Mr. J) is a passionate violin teacher. I have been taking violin lessons for one year now, and I must say that I learned so much in my first month of lessons. While teaching, he communicates effectively and makes learning the violin easy!

    Have started lessons with Chloe just one month back for my 9 year old. My daughter and I love the energy and enthusiasm she brings to each lesson. Her focus on technique is something I really appreciate. My daughter was learning violin for about 2 yrs before coming to studio violin, and just month I can see that her music is sounding better with Chloe's detailed focus on basics and techniques. My kid is loving it so far so thumbs up and highy recommend her!

    I have worked with Otis for nearly 7 years in a string quartet. I have seen him teach a wide age range and background of students in many contexts. I have observed Otis giving coachings, lessons, and masterclasses and in all of those settings he flourishes. His teaching style is dynamic, adaptive, and creative. He is very responsive to a student’s needs, and his expertise is shared in a compassionate and patient way. When a tactic may not be resonating with the student, Otis will deftly try fresh approaches. His creative thinking and insight is uniquely rich and engaging, and I highly recommend Otis as a teacher for all ages and levels of violin playing.

    My name is Thomas. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years now. I want to teach students to play what they want while also learning the basic fundamentals of guitar. If they want to learn their favorite pop song I'm going to teach them it, if they want to become an amazing guitar player I will teach them how to become that as well.

    I am a versatile violinist, with a background in classical, rock, and folk music. I've studied with classical and folk teachers, and am working on a Masters in Violin Performance at SFSU studying under Zak Grafilo, first violinist of the world-class Alexander Quartet. In addition, I write music for my own band, and work as my own manager, promoter, and visual artist. I have experience recording my own music as well as other musician's work. I also play guitar, piano, sing, and dabble on the banjo. As a teacher, I've coached youth rock bands, and taught private lessons to children and adults for many years. I currently work as one of the top teachers at Music N Beyond and Acme Music, teaching violin, piano, and guitar. I also teach private lessons out of my home.

    About

    My studio is a 5-day-a-week, one-stop shop where both students and/or adults may rent, purchase and/or repair their string instruments as they attend lessons at the same Heaney Violins location. I teach Suzuki method piano, violin, viola, guitar, beginning cello, and recorder beginning from ages 2 1/2 upwards. Voice is also taught and other instruments including ukelele, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. South Indian karnatak violin is also an option. Biannual recitals are held closely to the Mountain View studio location, and monthly group classes are also encouraged along with weekly instruction. Younger Suzuki students must be accompanied by parents who will learn along with their child how to play their instrument of choice. Typically, students enroll a semester at a time, except for summer sessions which are open enrollment periods.
